Comments:
A little pre NFP mini consolidation required the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average to have a bearish day due to where they were within that range zone. The Nasdaq Composite closed positive again. However, what is happening day to day is of little consequence and NFP will be the deciding factor and catalyst as to what price will be doing near term beyond Wednesday and Thursday.

If price is exhausted, we will continue to see sideways action or bearish action.

If price is just having a pit stop then we will see more strength to come.

CERS was our big gainer at around +20% and SKLZ the big loser at around 10%.

BTCUSD and ETHUSD both gained on Wednesday as GBPUSD had a negative day below 50MA.

Let’s go trade!
